When police decide whether or not to arrest someone for a DUI, there may be several steps they take first to determine if an arrest is warranted. One tool police may utilize is a field sobriety test at the scene. A failed sobriety test can lead to arrest, but can also be challenged in court. Recently in Tennessee, a failed sobriety played a role in the arrest of a CEO of a Nashville-based company.
The man was in a vehicle in a parking lot of the County Chamber of Commerce. Other drivers in the area alerted police to a man who was driving in an erratic manner and who hit a concrete island. The man also reportedly almost hit other vehicles.
